A dusty summer day in Montana spent searching for garnets trapped in granite inspired the colors in this classic Fair Isle tam. Eight colors are used in this design.
Tams are easier to knit than they seem, making this pattern perfect for the knitter who is new to Fair Isle knitting as well as for the experienced knitter who enjoys the play of color in Fair Isle designs.
Needles: Size 1 16” circular; Size 3 16” circular and double-points. Adjust needle sizes if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
